So much to write about, but yet I can’t add much more than what has already been covered.
I heard Mike McDaniel’s explanation about why he took a knee instead of going for the NFL points record. He said he didn’t want to run up the score nor embarrass his opponent, etc.
But…earlier when it was 56-13, McDaniel called for a long bomb, Mike White to Robbie Chosen.* That went for a TD and McDaniel certainly was running up the score by calling such a play. Miami led by 43 points with a few minutes left, and he ran up the score. I think that was an un-classy call on his part. But if you’re going to be unclassy to go from 56 to 63, then why not be unclassy again and set the record?
*UPDATE: Apparently, White called that play as an audible and it was not McD’s call.
A great win nonetheless.
I was scoreboard watching and saw the Bills offense crushed Washington. But honestly, it’s the same old Buffalo formula without a lot of new wrinkles. Washington’s D was spread out, allowing easy rushing yards for running back Josh Allen, who is so gun-shy of throwing INTs that his first instinct is always to run.
The Bills D took advantage of a lot of inexperienced Washington offensive players, including a QB who gave the Bills a lot of points with turnovers. The Bills might very well get 5 turnovers against us, but it will take a monumental effort on their part, because Tua won’t be so lax with the ball as Washington was.
The Bills lost to Zach Wilson. That tells you more about how good they are than a win over Washington. The Bills lost to Zach Wilson. Let that sink in.
The only thing about the Bills that worries me is dirty Matt Milano. He is the master of the sneaky cheap shot. He knows how to injure a player without the refs seeing. When players say “We never try to injure an opponent,” I believe it most times. But Milano definitely DOES try to injure. Late hits. Dirty hits. Headhunting. It’s all a routine part of his game, and sadly, the NFL never sees it.
Is Milano the dirtiest cheap-shot artist of all time, or only the dirtiest cheap-shot artist still active?
Click the video to start it.
Watch him lead with his helmet in an attempt the break the RB’s ribs and hip last year. (And no flag of course, because Milano is sneaky enough to do his dirty work in piles).
Look where his arms are (lowered). He had ZERO intention of tackling. He purposely removed his arms from the equation so he could turn his whole body into a bullet and lead with his helmet.
